Get Jiggy With This Figgy Pudding Recipe

Now, in the words of Bing Crosby's "I Wish You A Merry Christmas" we want to share this figgy pudding recipe! Here are the steps to make your own, below: 

Now bring us some figgy pudding!


STEP ONE

In a small sauce pan, add chopped figs, currants, water, rum, and brandy to a simmer. Once it simmers, light the mixture and remove pan from heat. Burn off alcohol for about a minute. Be careful while doing this.

STEP TWO 

In a separate small bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves, and salt. 

STEP THREE
In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, sugar, bread crumbs, and melted butter. Once combined, stir in fig mixture (let it cool slightly) and dry ingredients.

STEP FOUR

Use a flat spatula to fold in other dried fruit.

STEP FIVE

Butter a large Bundt pan or angel food pan. Add a few cups of water to a pan that is large enough to hold the Bundt or angel food pan. Place the Bundt or angel food pan into the larger pot and make sure the water comes at least halfway up the side of the pan. Adjust water levels accordingly. Remove pan from larger pot.

STEP SIX 

Scoop thick pudding batter into buttered Bundt or angel food pan, smooth it out, and cover with foil. Place pan into larger pot.

STEP SEVEN 

Cover and bring pot to a simmer, reduce heat to low and let pudding steam for 2 hours. Check water levels every 30 minutes or so.

STEP EIGHT 

After steaming, let the pan cool and then remove it from the water bath. Remove foil and flip it over so pudding comes out.

STEP NINE 

Slice and serve with as much whipped cream your heart desires!
